This may not be for the faint at heart. This morning out oldest nephew was confirmed at Church. Following the worship service we enjoyed family time and a delicious dinner. When we left there we went to the other side of town where a benefit dinner was being held for a local man who is seriously ill with pancreatic cancer. We didn't go for dinner, just wanted to make a donation, then ended up visiting with a very good friend for awhile. We got home around 5 o'clock. As I have stated before hand quilting is my favorite part of quilting but I haven't had anything sandwiched and ready to quilt for quite some time. I decided this afternoon would be a great time to put my quilt frame up, especially since it was 90 degrees outside. Since it was already early evening I decided there was no sense in changing out of my church dress. I did take my jacket off, leaving a sleeveless dress and not a pretty sight. And since I needed some pockets for the clips for the quilt frame the only thing I could find was a Christmas apron. The pockets worked great for the clips and for my I-Pod. But wait, it gets even better - I also put my crocs on as they are so comfortable, especially on the cement garage floor. I am so glad my husband didn't think about getting the camera out. Oh, and to top it off, one of the songs that played on my I-Pod was Gretchen Wilson's Redneck Woman. When I told my husband about the song he just looked at me and gave a very faint smile and nod. So now I have a quilt that is ready to be hand quilted. I left the frame up in the garage and am thinking that if I have enough energy left after Church I would like to get another quilt sandwiched. I haven't decided yet but I may have quilt that one.
Right now in my sewing room I have a dress that I started for our grand daughter. It is the first garment sewing I have done in a very long time. I would like to get it done before she comes to visit next weekend. I also have parts and pieces of a quilt that I have been working on. The blocks are sewn into rows. Now I need to sewing the sashings and corner stones together and get the top finished. I have a sewing station set up here in our family room where I have been working on the mystery quilt I started at Guild last Thursday. I have 12 blocks done, I think the pattern calls for 20 blocks but I may make the quilt bigger, not sure on that yet. This week is going to be busy with work and helping with grandchildren but hopefully I can get Allie's dress done and maybe even work on a few more blocks for the mystery quilt.
How many projects do you have "in the works"?
